Fred Hageman will facilitate our January meeting and lead a discussion on forgiveness. Are we as Christian writers exemplifying this characteristic of Christ? Are we extending it to others? Let's consider how we can inspire one another and our readers to practice this key element of our faith.
Our president, Candy Abbott, is beaming with good cause as she displays the award we--Delmarva Christian Writrs Fellowship--just received as The Best of Georgetown 2019 for Non-Profit association or organization.
This unexpected endorsement comes just in time to help us promote the Delmarva Christian Writers Conference.
Purpose of DCWF
What you can expect from DCWF
Here we are at our monthly meeting in Oct. 2008 where our teaching was about manuscript formatting and how to navigate Microsoft Word. It is becoming more common for our members to bring their laptops. We're doing our best to keep abreast of the leaps and bounds of technology.
Established in 1993, the group has approx. 45 members on the rolls with an average attendance of 8 to 15 and a regional mailing list of 130. The majority are new writers who are mentored by those of us who have been published. It is an informal gathering for critiquing and encouragement with numerous resources to build up the Christian who writes.
There is no membership fee, no "formal" agenda, and no pressure, but we do hold one another accountable to see progress in our writing.
We meet once a month, the third Saturday, from 9 until 12:30 (sometimes 10 to 2). Our meetings typically include a devotional, shared information, a teaching, critique groups, and prayer. Friendships are fostered over lunch and between meetings. On occasion, we host day-long writing seminars or retreats.
A number of our members attend regional or national conferences (visit www.writehisanswer.com for links to the Philadelphia and Colorado conferences).
